Beautiful Lives: Christiaan

Word Play
Christiaan is still very much in demand on the editorial circuit—he tends to the tresses of cover stars like Emma Watson, Scarlett Johansson, and Lady Gaga—but Christiaan: The Haircare Line or Christiaan: The Salon isn't in the cards. "I'm just a singular character. I want to live like a painter or a writer who doesn't have a secretary and just does what he's supposed to do," he says. "People keep asking me all these questions—I might start writing a book for myself."
